MISSOULA – New Montana men’s basketball coach Travis DeCuire has selected his assistant coaches and named former Washington State head coach Ken Bone as his associate head coach.

DeCuire said as a first-time head coach it’s important for him to have an assistant with experience in big, pressure games.

Bone was fired by WSU in March after the fifth year of his seven-year contract. School officials said he would still receive the $1.7 million he was owed for the remaining two years.

Assistant Jono Metzger-Jones is remaining at UM. Former Chico State assistant Chris Cobb is joining UM’s staff while Marlon Stewart has been named the director of basketball operations.
